So this is not breaking news but I was lucky enough to be invited to the Developer Launch party held by Microsoft in central London. This was the real party for those who are really involved in making the phone happen and want to build apps for the phone not the party for those hangers on who were fobbed off with this party ;-)
I had a great time, met a load of interesting people doing interesting things for Windows Phone 7 and I managed to get a few sound bites of video from some of them which I have edited together for your viewing enjoyment!

Many thanks to @will_coleman and his team for making everything happen and I am really looking forward to the future!
